Kwa mujibu wa Global Publishers mtandao unaoongoza kwa kuwa karibu na wasanii wa tasnia ya filamu nchini, Marehemu Kuambiana amefikwa na mauti katika hospitali ya Mama Ngoma iliyopo maeneo ya Mwenge jijini Dar-es-salaam alipokimbizwa baada ya kuanguka akiwa chooni katika Hotel ya Silver iliyopo maeneo ya Sinza ambapo walikuwa kambi wakiendelea ku-shoot filamu.

Kabla ya hapo Adam Kuambiana alilalamika kusumbuliwa na tumbo. Chanzo kamili cha kifo chake hakijawekwa wazi. Tayari mwili umetolewa Mwenge na kupelekwa Muhimbili kuhifadhiwa na kwa uchunguzi zaidi.

After an on and off lengthy illness, Tanzanian veteran musician,Maalim ,Gurumo passed away yesterday in Dar es Salaam. Maalim Gurumo died at the Muhimbili National Hospital (MNH) where he was admitted.

He will be remembered as one of the top and talented musicians to have ever emerged from Tanzania. He was one of the greatest songwriter with almost all his songs telling a tale of caution towards life and how we view the world. Gurumo, an ardent Simba Sports Club fan, was a member of the Msondo Ngoma Music Band for over ten years.

May God rest his soul in eternal peace. Amen

SA Mandela memorial

In what will go down the historical books as the “gathering of the century” and one of the most watched events in television history, millions of people across the world, including thousands who attended the Nelson Mandela’s Memorial Service alongside over 100 world leaders, present and former, bid farewell to Nelson Mandela, also known as Madiba and Tata, who died last week at age 95.

In a packed FNB Stadium in Soweto, the same place that Mandela last appeared in public in July 2010 during the final match of the soccer world cup ,thousands of people were singing and dancing at the top of their lungs despite heavy rains that had started falling from the early morning hours. It was indeed a celebration of a life of a rare human being who deeply understood the power of forgiveness and reconciliation.

Among the few leaders who had a chance to speak, it was US President Barack Obama who “stole the show” with an eulogy that was so touchy and moving. Obama called Mandela “”the last great liberator of the 20th century,” and the giant of history. Obama reminded the crowd in attendance and millions of people glued to their television of the principles that Mandela stood for.


On the other hand, thousands of South Africans at the stadium used the same opportunity to show their anger or frustrations to their current president, Jacob Zuma, by booing him at almost every opportunity they got especially when his face appeared in the big screens around the stadium. Zuma’s presidency has been engulfed with scandals after scandals and of lately he is being tormented with misuse of state funds for his own luxurious living.

Also another notable event was  the hand shake between US President Barack Obama and Cuba’s Raul Castro which was rare gesture between the leaders of two ideological opponents. It was probably the best reflection of the reconciliation spirit that Madiba stood for. The only other hand shake between the leaders of these two countries was between Fidel Castro and Bill Clinton in 2000 during the UN Assembly.

After today’s event, Mandela’s remains were to lie in state for three days at the Union Buildings in Pretoria, where he was sworn in as president in 1994 as the first democratically elected President and first black president.

Mandela will be buried on Sunday in Qunu, his ancestral home in the rolling hills of the Eastern Cape province, 700 km (450 miles) south of Johannesburg. Only a few world leaders are due to attend what will be a more intimate family affair.

Rankim Ramadhani DJThe Late DJ Rankim Ramadhani

2013 can’t go unnoticed as one of the worse years in Tanzania’s media and entertainment industry’s eyes. As if all the people we have already lost since January isn’t enough, today we mourn the passing away of a friend and one of the best DJs in the country, DJ Rankim Ramadhani.

The available reports  that we have obtained puts forward an announcement that DJ Rankim Ramadhani has passed away at Mwananyamala Hospital.  According to the reports, and through Radio One [Breaking News segment] Rankim he was suffering from stomachache[probably from ulcers] and on Sunday he suddenly fell when he was with friends at Meeda Bar in Sinza. They rushed him to Sinza Palestine Hospital where he was treated and allowed to go home. At home, things got worse. He was taken back to Sinza Hospital before being transferred to Mwananyamala Hospital  where he passed away earlier today around 3pm. The arrangements of his funerals are underway.

Rest In Peace Rankim. You have gone down as one of the best DJs and a real hustler. You never gave up even when things seemed way too fuzzy.
